Grindcast Episode 174: Our Peak Episode
Well folks, we’re never beating this one. From the Zendikar Rising Championship to pooping softballs, this episode has a little bit for everyone. Or, you know, the two main categories of people: Magic players and weirdos. Thanks as always to Wave Sunray for our music!
Grindcast Episode 173: The Decks of the Zendikar Rising Championship
Is it a Pro Tour? Is it…something else? Who knows! But it’s two formats and a bunch of good players, so we’re taking a look at the standard and historic lists we’ve managed to pull off of twitter so far. Let’s find out if Dimir Control is better than Rogues, if Gruul is truly dead,...
Grindcast Episode 172: How to Fix Historic
…ok so we don’t actually have the answer to that question. But we are breaking down the format, the best decks, and our concerns with it now and going forward. Plus! A bit of legacy, the fairest format in the land, after this weekend’s Manatraders tournament. Thanks as always to Wave Sunray for our music.

Unbelievable, we’re like two weeks in and standard has more than one deck! In this celebratory episode we’re going over the individual card choices you can make to customize the top decks in the meta depending on what you expect to play against.

We’re taking a look at standard and even a little historic in the leadup to this weekend’s Grand Finals! Thanks as...
All right, we got our ban. And…it’s just Uro. But don’t let an abandoned standard keep you from getting excited for, uh, mechanically unique The Walking Dead Secret Lair cards? Am I reading this right? Thanks as always to Wave Sunray for our music!
Zendikar’s not even out yet but new standard is in full swing, with one particular four color, four-armed elemental swinging harder than the rest. We also take a look at modern, the opposite format of current standard, where you can play damn near anything and have a shot. Thanks as always to Wave Sunray for...
